I recently purchased this car and had an
opportunity to drive it in fresh snow
the same day. I could not beleive how
easy and at the same time fun was to
drive this incredible machine. It is so
nice to push it in the controlled slide,
press the accelerator and enjoy... the
most fun to drive car I ever had.
All wheel drive system, great engine,
This is a fun car to drive because I
feel connected. The car is almost as
responsive as my own reflexes so it
complies with your inputs very well.
The passing power on the highway is
wonderful, great speed once your
moving, but I hate to flog the little
engine hard enough from a red light to
really see the quick acceration. I
prefer to push it harder once under
way. Extremely comfortable up front
and the kids are fine with the back
seat. The dark fabric shows lint and
dust dirt more easily than other
interiors I've had.
The turbo boost is intoxicating and
I'll often blip up to 95 mph just
because I can.
Maybe eliminate need for premium, but
otherwise just a great car as-is.
Very nice sport sedan for the
money...best in practicality and
performance...for the money. With
40,000 miles on the car now...only had
problems with driver side power widow
(fixed) under warranty. Car still feels
new and solid. Paid list for the
car...no regrets... I still love
driving it and feel good after driving

surface, slightly too much roll and
understeer), low end torque, rims and
tires (ugly rims and sub-par tires).
